Searching for your next used car? Interested in learning more about the perks of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle? If so, our team at Watermark Ford of Marion is here to guide you forward. If you call Marion, Herrin, or Carbondale, IL, home, read on to learn more about the many benefits of driving a certified pre-owned model today!

What Are Certified Pre-Owned Cars?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car is a vehicle that has been gently used and has low mileage on it. They haven't been in any major accidents and have already been thoroughly vetted, which takes out the guesswork of choosing a used car.

In some cases, CPO vehicles may also qualify for lower interest rates on loans, comparable to those that often come with purchasing a new car. CPO owners enjoy these advantages long after driving off the lot. 

Our Certified Pre-Owned Inventory

When you buy a certified pre-owned model from our dealership, you have the benefit of knowing where the car has been before you take the wheel. That's because each vehicle comes with a free CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™.

If something unexpected occurs, you can sit back and relax because all our certified pre-owned models also include 24/7 roadside assistance. That means, you can buy with even greater peace of mind because you know help is only a call way.

We offer certified pre-owned vehicles with two levels of certification: Blue and Gold.

What Are Blue Certified Vehicles?

Our Blue Certified inventory includes models from a wide variety of manufacturers and are no more than 10 years old. They each have fewer than 120,000 miles on their odometers and must pass a detailed 139-point vehicle inspection to earn this title. On top of that, they include comprehensive limited warranty coverage and come with 11,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points.

What Are Gold Certified Vehicles

Our Gold Certified inventory, on the other hand, consists of Ford models that are no more than six years old and have 80,000 miles or less on them. Each must pass a comprehensive 172-point vehicle inspection and they come with the following perks:

  • 22,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points
  • Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • Comprehensive Limited Warranty

These benefits can help you move forward with confidence, knowing you'll be covered for years and miles to come.

Benefits of Warranty Forever

At our dealership we also sell qualified vehicles that include our exclusive Warranty Forever limited powertrain coverage. It includes your engine, transmission, and drive assembly, and lasts for as long as you own the vehicle!

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Financing

Once you narrow down a certified pre-owned vehicle that matches all your specs, head over to our finance center. There, one of our experts will discuss your financing options with you, answer any questions you may have, and help you seal the deal on your next set of wheels.
